Approaching the house via the secluded drive, the sheer grandeur and size of the house is evident.

The double garage is a detached brick built building on the most westerly side of the house approached via the drive with ample turning space and a hard standing in front. 

Wide steps rise and sweep around to the elegant solid oak oversized front door, with original wrought iron door furniture and leading to an inviting entrance hall.

The entrance hall has a wide plank solid wood floor, exposed wood beams and a stunning solid wood panelled staircase leading to the first floor. A dramatic and yet homely welcome to this magnificent house.

The drawing room can be found in the westernmost part of the ground floor and is a very special room indeed, with a double height vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams, diamond shaped leaded light windows, stained glass and a large inglenook style fireplace with original wooden mantle with gargoyle carvings as well as a beautiful solid wood floor.
